The Simpsons | Interviews | Matt Groening's Desert Island Flicks
J is for Jay

No Simpsons before breakfast!

Matt digressed for a bit before his next cartoon, as Phil Jupitus asked him if he watched his own animations.

'My kids are huge Simpsons fans. Because we have access to the show, we have lots of tapes of it at home, and they watch it constantly. It's got so bad that I recently had to ban the Simpsons before breakfast time.'

'When I was a kid I loved Rocky and Bullwinkle. Homer's name is kind of a tribute to that - Bullwinkle's full name was Bullwinkle J. Moose, which is where the J in Homer J Simpson comes from. There was a great joke when Homer becomes obsessed with finding out what the J stands for... and it turns out it stands for Jay.'
